    I have moved from a long time Palm (not smartphone) and Nokia user.

    When I am in the dialer, I can't seem to get names when hit the keyboard. I just get numbers and if I hold long I get my speed dial.

    How can I get it to work like a real phone. - Hit 7 4 times and get to the S in the phone book.

    Also anyway to get last name, first name?
    Thanks for the help

    Why not just type the name as you would on a normal phone? The desire will recognize the options of names/surnames based on what you type

    you need to treat it like predictive text to search for names.

    So to look for "John", type 5646
